* Holiday Anya + VIDEOS!!! *

Written on Monday, October 20th, 2014

   Yes, you read that right! VIDEOS! I have 2 to share with you! They both have voice overs too! I know! I’m getting fancy schmancy! Really, my honey bought me a new webcam, mic, and video editing program (well, I bought them and then told him he bought them for me. 😉 ). I gave it a test run and boy oh boy do I have some immense respect for those who make weekly videos! Okay, well, the first program has a glitch with my video card so it didn’t work out too well. The second one, Adobe Premiere Elements 13, finished what the other couldn’t do in an afternoon. I’ve been working on these videos for over a week.

    Okay, anywhoo… I made up a card using Holiday Anya. This was my card for Day 10 of CMFCM, but the class is over and I missed being able to put it up in the gallery. (Stupid Pinnacle!) I even fixed some Copic mistakes (class topic) on this one without even “making” myself do it. 😉 I recently got this stamp from someone who was clearing out their craft room. Hey, if it saves me money and gives me more supplies, I’m ALL FOR IT! Okay…. Back on topic! She’s such a cute little stamp!

   The first video is on coloring her. I cut out a LOT! I’ve also got some good tips in there that I’ve learned in my many, many years of crafting! The second is on the making of the card. I actually made my own velvet flocked paper. 🙂 I used Doodlebug’s Ladybug flocking. This was MESSY!!! At first I didn’t like how the sentiment looked, but I like it now. Like I said in the video, putting a white border around something can give the eye a break when going from dark colors to busy backgrounds or busy backgrounds to busy backgrounds. I so really like how it came out. 🙂 Of course, I had to add Wink of Stella. Addicting marker! In the photo below, you can see it better. 🙂 Oh, and that GORGEOUS silver twine from Lawn Fawn!!!
